Annette Smith:

Decades of Experience Helping Her Neighbors Protect The Environment

The thing I’ve learned through 17 years of working with Vermonters is to never underestimate Vermonters.”

-Annette Smith, Executive Director of Vermonters for a Clean Environment, Vermonter of the Year 2017

May 19th, 2024:  Electromagnetic Frequency Pollution Deep Dive, PART THREE

Education and awareness are the key ingredients in our ability to defend our rights.  So are caring neighbors such as Annette.  

Annette has spent decades helping Vermonters navigate the regulatory system in defense of their local environment.  She’s taken on industries such as large-scale energy and telecommunications companies.  Her experience is priceless when it comes to navigating the ever-evolving regulatory and legislative processes.  For example, Vermonters for a Clean Environment has been helping neighbors in the WMRW listening area of Warren and Waitsfield resist tower projects, and was instrumental in winning Vermonters the right to opt-out of Smart Meters on our homes. 

We spent the hour talking about efforts in Vermont to address Electro-Magnetic Frequency pollution as part of a month-long series on the subject.  There is no better person to give us an update on the situation as it currently stands in our state.  Listen to the interview to learn what is happening on state, local and, most importantly, grassroots levels. 



Is the Legislature Listening?

Student Declaration 2023 Author Lauren Palmer

The Student Declaration 2023


“When, at the end of any great or terrible storm, we emerge, as now we do out of three years of an unprecedented global phenomenon, into a moment of silence, we are presented an opportunity: an opportunity to pause, to reflect, and to evaluate those events which took place, and those actions undertaken, in the depths of the upheaval. Such is the moment we are now offered, and We, student representatives from across the United States of America, Canada, and the world, having been swept up in this storm of Covid-19 responses for the last three years, urge now serious reflection…”
